A return to the NBA appears to be on the horizon for former No. 1 overall pick Andrew Bogut.

The Athletic's Shams Charania has reported that the Golden State Warriors are emerging as the favourite to land Bogut, who spent the last five months playing with the Sydney Kings in the NBL

Charania had already reported that will command the interest of multiple contenders now that the Sydney Kings have been eliminated from the NBL playoffs. Sydney was swept 2-0 by the Melbourne United in the semifinal round.

Bogut, who last appeared in an NBA game on Jan. 1, 2018 with the Lakers, signed a two-year deal with the NBL's Kings in April 2018. In the 2018-19 season, Bogut earned NBL MVP and Defensive Player of the Year honours after averaging 11.6 points and 11.4 rebounds per game.

Over the course of his 13-year NBA career, the 34-year-old has averages of 9.8 points, 8.7 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game, winning a title with the Golden State Warriors in 2015.
